Gorgeous ring! The only thing I could think of is maybe a chevron band or curved band that has a wider curve than your e-ring.

msformaldehyde:  Your ring is GORGEOUS!!!

I’m also commenting to follow. If you figure out how to do this I want to know! I posted a thread a while back asking if any one without a low setting still had a gap and only one person had a slight gap. My ring is still in production but from the CADs I think it is going to be too high for a gap. I kind of have my heart set on a gap and stack look. I definitely want to know if you figure out how to create the look even with a higher setting because I hope to do the same.

Well, if you wore a rose gold spacer, that would kind of mimic the look, and maybe you could get a band soldered in a way that made a gap?

msformaldehyde:  I honestly have no clue, but I just wanted to come on and say I think it’s so totally cute that you want a gap. Because it seems like most people come on here and say they don’t want a gap. I love the gap!

Love your ring. Don’t know how to achieve the gap, but I like the idea of bringing in a small stacker of rose gold to create an illusion of one at least. Gorgeous ring!!

I think it depends on the sort of band you want. It is easily possible to get an eternity or half eternity diamond band that sits higher than the edge of the halo on your ER. However, that could be problematic because while it would create the gap you want, it could also cause wear against the ER if the diamonds on a band were touching it constantly. In that case, you would probably need a spacer band, which would take up the space and again leave you with no gap.

I would say get an enternity band, or a thicker high set band that will sit high enough up on your ering to touch the halo and leave a gap. Hold on, im going to google image search to find something like what im talking about so that makes sense. Lol

Something kind of like this. With some really pretty side details that make it thicker..or taller..however you would describe it. So that it will sit high enough to be sort of level with your halo, and therefore not flush.

msformaldehyde:  I love a gap too and my ER is also set high so the jeweller who made it has suggested having the wedding band and ER soldered together underneath (very discretely!) this also saves them rubbing together and damaging eachother over time!

The idea isn’t for everyone but i’ll be doing it! and you can have it removed without any damage or visible marks to the rings if you decide you don’t want it anymore 🙂
